Approach to healthy diet and activity

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

I am noticing I am gaining weight again (4 lbs.) after losing about 50 over 3 years. I am not sure how I lost those but probably through a number of different things I have done. I also have been tired/low energy since my second hip operation in April and I did lose an accelerated amount during this time. I will be seeing my doctor for a general check up in about a month.
I am gearing up to work on my health again after having both hips replaced since the new year. I do not do well with structured attempts at diet or exercise so choosing to work on lifestyle change to get to my goal (another 50 lbs). My theory is if I can maintain a healthy lifestyle for a sustained period of time I will naturally adopt it on an on-going basis.
I treasure the ability to choose things I like and have failed at routines like memberships and formal diets in the past. I think this means that I will need an array of choices for activities and food that all fit into a healthy lifestyle but give my sufficient choices that i will be able to choose something I like at any given time. Enjoyment is also a critical item for me and is related to developing some very poor eating habits.
Possible? We'll see. Comments appreciated.

    I have had heaps of things derail me and pop me into a immobility issue...I have learned you can't always control whats happening with your body, but you can control what you put in your mouth and move what you can when you can. Food for function and energy is very different than eating for fun. :) I also got resistance bands and exercises for when I was in bed etc. Just ideas. But the cleaner you eat and the more you stick to a balanced variety of whole foods, the better the results and health for life! If you need anything just holler! :) you can do it!
